Lyla Carbone – 1st Place Award Winner – 2019 George Peabody Essay Contest

February 27, 2019

This year marked the 30th Annual George Peabody Essay Contest.  Third grade students throughout our city were asked to reflect on how they would change the world as a philanthropist like George Peabody.  We are very proud to acknowledge Lyla Carbone for receiving 1st place in this essay contest.  A highlight from her essay focused on how a simple smile can change somebody’s day.  What a great way to begin to promote positive change in the world!  We are proud of Lyla and all of the third grade students who participated in this annual event.
